The team says there is no evidence if this means the virus became well-adapted to humans in bats; exists in other animal populations; was spreading undetected in humans for months while mutating; or could have leaked from a laboratory.
Significantly, the study says genetic examination of four samples containing the virus from the seafood market to those taken from the Wuhan patient are ‘99.9 per cent’ identical. This suggests it came from infected visitors or vendors, indicating ‘Sars-CoV-2 had been imported into the market by humans’. The authors confirmed to the MoS they had found no evidence ‘of cross-species transmission’ at the market.
‘The evidence suggests a single introduction of the human-adapted form of the virus into humans,’ they said, adding that the strange lack of earlier forms or sibling viruses contrasted with the SARS outbreak.
‘The crime scene was completely gone,’ said Guan Yi, a University of Hong Kong expert. ‘How can we solve a case without evidence?’
The greatest secret comes from the jump of the horse shoe bats to another hosts (maybe a pangolin) but the next jump to humans cannot happen naturally, it is induced where the barriers are removed, how it happens and where it happens cannot be identified, by studying all the mutations that can occur naturally cannot identify the source in animals, because it is not natural, that is why it is an impossible task to lay the blame game, nobody has the answers and it is just a waste of time.
